"Accident at work"

About: Solihull Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as a relative),

I can't praise the A&E department enough! My sister in law had a metal object embedded in her foot so drove her to Solihull A & E, very kind staff took care of her within ten minutes. They dealt with it by removing the object, cleaned and dressed the foot and gave her a tetanus jab,

The whole experience including getting medication from the pharmacy took 40 minutes. brilliant! keep up the good work.

I thought the location of the pharmacy could be improved.
